Stop The Idaho-Maryland Mine




Rise Gold, a junior mining company with questionable experience, wants to re-open the Idaho-Maryland Mine in Grass Valley, CA.


Our Nevada County Supervisors will vote on it as early as 2021. Residents and businesses think it's a really bad idea.


Here's what's at stake:

  • Wrecks our neighborhoods with 24/7 drilling and blasting for 80 years

  • Pollutes our air with rock crushing, loading, and truck hauling

  • Devours our power using 12% of Nevada County’s consumption annually

  • Erases our County’s plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions

  • Drains our water using South Fork Wolf Creek as a storm drain

  • Reduces property values and threatens 300+ private wells

Together, we can stop the Mine!
